While You Were Sleeping

August 23, 2012

The first call came in at nine oclock last evening. The responders went to help a lady that had fallen and suffered injury. At the time you may have been sitting back in your easy chair watching “Everybody Loves Raymond” eating a bowl of popcorn.

The next call was a tree belt fire caused by a downed electrical power line. The time it came in was one thirty in the morning – most likely – while you were sleeping.

This website was started as a way to chronicle the efforts of some pretty special people – Stafford County Emergency responders.

Few people realize the tremendous sacrifice made by volunteer emergency responders. Heck, even emergency responders themselves don’t always know about the efforts of their fellow responders from another station, or a different discipline – if you don’t tell the story.

So, that’s the purpose of this website – to tell the story.

The lady was transported to Stafford Hospital and then on to Pratt. Firefighters left the scene of the fire at five in the morning – just in time to hurry home, clean up, grab a cup of coffee, and head to work.

If you run into a medic or a firefighter today – tell them Thanks.
